OK, my fellow INFP's, what is so bad about people getting the impression that we're "goody-two-shoes" ?
You guys say that like it's a pejorative or something.
Is it because of the "it's cool to be baaaad" cultural trope?
The " badass" anti-hero type dominates books, TV, and movies. Bad is seen as cooler than good.
What eventually happened is we have reached a point where the "cool to be bad" cultural trope is no longer original. It pops up everywhere. All we get is a bunch of self-absorbed prima donnas trying to out-cool and out-bad each other. (This is why I hated Wolverine from the X-men movies. Talk about a scenery chewing, grandstanding douchebag all in the name of being a "cool" anti-hero)
People need to realize that being good is actually cooler than being bad. Being good is not neutral. Just because you pay your taxes, and never commit a crime, does NOT mean you're good. You're just neutral.
Goodness is a constant struggle.
Goodness takes active effort.
The sweet, good girl-next-door is actually cooler to me because it's so easy to slip into evil. It's easier to be the narcisistic prima donna. Self-preservation (which drives "badass" characters) is a basic instinct that even the lowest life forms share. What's so cool about that?
